Job Duties/Responsibilities: 1) DRG Project – 35% - Once a potential subject is identified, the Research Coordinator (RC) must attend clinic and consent the patient. The RC must then coordinate the handoff on the day of surgery of the specimen. The RC will then extract information from the chart. The RC will keep all of the records and data, and update the IRB as needed. Patients are expected at a rate of only 2-8 per year, so it will be few patients but the RC will be the person responsible for this project. 2) iOptimize/E-STAND – 35% - This project needs some final regulatory paperwork to be completed before initiation of the iOptimize trial, which will be the responsibility of the RC to move forwards. The RC will be responsible for completing the final paperwork. The RC will be responsible for familiarizing themselves with the E-STAND trial and planning going forwards. They will have a role in consenting patients for this trial and record keeping, and coordination between HCMC and UMMC. 3) Other Projects – 15% - There are several other small projects such as big data projects that the RC will be asked to oversee and possibly submit regulatory paperwork for (IRB applications, etc). They must liaise and organize meetings with others in the group. 4) Grants and Papers – 15% - The RC will contribute to grant writing and papers as necessary. They will be expected to drive publications and grants, not necessarily by doing it themselves, but through the coordination and setting of deadlines for other participants, as well as close follow-up.
